"When you arrive at your future, will you blame your past?" -- Robert Half

What holds you back from being and doing more? In your journal, list what you believe is holding you back.

Have you blamed people or factors outside of yourself? It's important to understand that ALL problems are rooted inside us. Even the blocks that appear to be outside of us are only reflecting back an issue we have inside that we have not yet owned. Once we address our inner issue, the outer situation no longer troubles us.

The buck always stops with us. We step into our power when we accept responsibility for our lives.

"The most self-destructive thought that any person can have is thinking that he or she is not in total control of his or her life. That's when, 'Why me?' becomes a theme song."

-- Roger Dawson

"...look at that word blame. It's just a coincidence that the last two letters spell the word me. But that coincidence is worth thinking about. Other people or unfortunate circumstances may have caused you to feel pain, but only you control whether you allow that pain to go on. If you want those feelings to go away, you have to say: 'It's up to me.'"

-- Arthur Freeman

"Don't make excuses -- make good."

-- Elbert Hubbard

The secret of making anything work is to want to make it work, and to be so positive about it that it could not possibly do otherwise. To tackle any difficult job in a half-hearted way does not call for success; but when it is tackled wholeheartedly and with a real desire to see it work, only the very best will come about. Let everything you undertake be undertaken wholeheartedly, form the very smallest and mundane job to the most difficult and complicated ones. Be willing to accept real challenges in life, and never be afraid of them. When they are faced in the right spirit and with the inner knowledge that it is I working in and through you who will help you to accomplish the task, anything can happen. Change your outlook, and you can open the door to an inflow of very positive and creative energies to your whole being. Realise you can change and change at great speed, but it is up to you.

Try not to become a man of success but rather try to become a man
of value. - Albert Einstein (1879-1955, German-born American Physicist)

"A person's worth is contingent upon who he is, not upon what he does, or how much he has. The worth of a person, or a thing, or an idea, is in being, not in doing, not in having." - Alice Mary Hilton

The true perfection of man lies, not in what man has, but in what
man is...Nothing should be able to harm a man but himself. Nothing
should be able to rob a man at all. What a man really has is what is in
him. What is outside of him should be a matter of no importance. - Oscar Wilde

They can conquer who believe they can. He has not learned the
first lesson of life who does not every day surmount a fear.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
(1803-1882, American Poet, Essayist)

The greatest power is often simple patience.
E. Joseph Cossman
(American Businessman, Author, Lecturer)

"Learn how to be happy with what you have while you pursue all that you want."-- Jim Rohn
